Friends of St John's

Registered Charity No. 1159471

Friends of St John’s is a charity run by parent and guardian volunteers. We are an informal and friendly group that give our time to organise what we hope are viewed as enjoyable fundraising events to facilitate enrichment opportunities throughout the school which will benefit our children.

Fundraising has allowed the Friends to purchase/provide:

  • Wet-play games
  • Children’s costumes for school productions
  • Wireless microphones and a speaker
  • Ice lollies for all children following Sports Day
  • A significant donation towards the cost of leavers hoodies
  • A significant donation towards Young Voices t-shirts
  • A BBQ for fundraising events
  • Events tables
  • Book bags for reception children

Looking to the future we hope to provide a large piece of play equipment (a pirate playship) and an outdoor classroom which the children will be able to use for outdoor learning, parents will also be able to shelter in this from the weather at pick-up time. With your help we have so far managed to raise approximately £5500 towards this cost!

As a parent/guardian of a child at St John’s CE Primary School you are automatically a member of the Friends and as such you can attend meetings, vote on proposals and make suggestions for spending or raising funds.  We welcome new faces and fresh ideas and we value all your views so please try and attend the meetings if you can.

At present the Friends of St John’s Committee consists of:

Becky Dunwell, Chairperson
Kirstie Smith, Treasurer
Jose Railton, Secretary
